To create from scratch is something very special. I sometimes forget as a professional creative human, that my ability to take something that once lived secretly in my mind and watch it develop and become real before my eyes, is pretty magical. It is something we all have to remind ourselves in times of stress and when we are feeling overwhelming pressure.
I have been working with the amazing team of flower fairies at Wildflora for a few months now. It has been such a delight to evolve my knowledge and creativity when it comes to florals. So when it came time to have their Grand Opening party for their new 2nd shop, I was thrilled to be able to make that night a magical botanical reality.
A simple fall gathering filled with veggies and greens. I know this season is usually filled with roasted birds, gravy and mash -- but this doesn't mean you can't change it up and try out something new.
This winter workshop + farm meal was the second in our seasonal living series, and it turned out to be everything I could have hoped for. For this one we decided we’d keep it a bit smaller and more intimate as a reflection of the season, as we were expecting typical Oregon winter rainy weather. However, just like our fall workshop, we had an unseasonably beautiful, clear day.
